The latest of these efforts is Ripple’s entry into the Asian market. the biggest Islamic bank in Saudi Arabia, Al-Rajhi, joined RippleNet just a couple of weeks ago.

During his speech, Dilip announced Ripple’s plans to fully enter the Asian market by setting up a base of operations in Dubai. this is expected to be realized before the end of 2018. Going further, Rao explained the importance of Ripple’s technology and what it means for the employees within the Middle East. given that many employees in the region are foreigners who send money to their home countries, there has been a serious problem in that the transaction fees charged haven’t favored them. Also, the time it takes for the transactions to travel through is something of a disappointment to many.

Dilip Rao explained that Ripple aims to eliminate these burdens by introducing a fast transaction processing system that charges negligible figures in transaction fees. Also, he talked of Ripple’s InterLedger Protocol. If implemented, the ILP can allow various ledgers to connect and make funds transfer all the easier and faster. Currently, the XRP network will handle around 1,500 transactions per second. that makes it the world’s fastest crypto network.

The UAE and the Middle East at large has been very receptive of the blockchain technology. just this april, the U.A.E government announced plans to use the technology to handle government transactions and information.

Things might get even higher as more banks be a part of the network and XRP adoption will increase.
